Default Red Claw vs Soon Hocks

Yo NigelN,

Indeed you are right. I have 9 Soon Hocks in total, about 3x4" and 6x2" Soon Hock (Marble Goby). They are so cute indeed. My children and wife love it. The Red Claw will climb all over them and they simply just ignore the Red Claws.

Here is another video where the dominant male Red Claw is constantly seen "playing" with the Soon Hocks and Ghost Shrimps. Let see who eats who eventually. So far so good. My gut feel is that the Ghost shrimp will be the first to be eaten when the Red Claws attack together.

Yo slowhand,

Nice Cherax Crayfish you have there.

My Aro has a very nice temperament and only prefer to eat Crickets, Super Worm, Bull frogs, and Crayfish without shell (when they die and I remove the shell to feed the Aro) .

When the Aro is bored, it will play with the Male Red Claws and let their dance begin....

I have about 22 Red Claws (7 males & 15 females) in the main tank with the Aro, ranging from 2" to 8". I have another 30 Red Claw babies at 0.5cm in another maternity tank with their mummy

Cheers,
S1

The biggest thing to watch when feeding, or doing anything to your crayfish is copper. That said, best to not over feed foods that are high in coper as it will build up in their system and kill them. Foods like the following...

Shrimp
avocados
grapes
almonds
peanuts
mushrooms
legumes
brazils
cashews
poppy seeds
sunflower
chickpeas
liver

The above list is only to say do not over feed on these items, not to say do not feed them at all. Just avoid where you can. The funny thing about crayfish and other crustaceans, like shrimp, is they are naturally very high in copper so feeding your crayfish other crayfish constantly would no doubt actually harm them.

Bro .S1 got question to ask. How long did it take for your female(s) to berry after they mated? I'm assuming you caught them in the act.

Yo Bro Nigel,

I was fortunate the first time round for my Red Clarkii, after I got them, the female berried after 2 weeks. Thereafter, the babies are now 3cm.

I have placed the female and male back together around 1st Oct, and they have been caught in the act almost everyday for 1 month now. The female have yet to berry till today.

So sorry, will keep you updated when she does.

Cheers,
S1
